  1. conversation within task

    as soon as we push a message within a task, it informs all the member of the team, even if the task is allocated to only 2 members "only" => it would be better to inform only the allocated people of the concerned task instead of the total members list of the team

  2. Planner Tab Problem in Mac Application

    It has been noted here that Planner tabs are forcing an additional login. I seem to be having this issue except instead of a login window popping, I am being redirected to the following URL, which does not load....{The Braces have been redacted of my personal username}

  3. Desktop App requires login to app AND connections every time

    When using the desktop app we are required to log in every time to Office 365 when the app loads AND when the Planner tab loads. We have O365 connected with SAML to our portal.

  6. Notification for Completed Tasks

    It would great if the creator of a task gets notified when the person it's assigned to completes it. I can't keep going back and forth and checking to see what's complete and ready for review, it would be very beneficial to my teams productivity to get a message or an email saying the task I assigned someone was completed.

  7. Create a list view by due date in Planner

    Create a simple one line list view by due date (task and due date) for easy viewing (preferred over the calendar, which is hard to view)

  8. Add calendar (schedule view) for all 'my tasks' in planner, across all plans

    In planner, you can see all of your tasks, across all plans, but you can't see them in a calendar. In an individual plan, you can see this in 'schedule'. I understand you can accomplish this through outlook, but our team would rather stay in Teams/ planner when reviewing all open items.

  10. Manage "My Tasks" better in Planner. Only showing tasks where I have a pending item due.

    Currently - the Planner App is a great tool that allows our business to organize tasks and projects in one place. We can assign portions of a task to certain individuals and have discussions in the "Comments" box for the task.

    Right now, though, if I am assigned a certain item within an overall task, the entire task shows up in My Tasks on Planner.

    It would be very helpful if the Planner allowed this function for the Owner of the task only, and allowed those with just smaller items in the Checklist to have the task be removed from…

  11. Several MS Planner plans join together into a master MS plan

    It would be helpful if several MS Planner plans (one per channel) could be automatically aggregated into some kind of master MS Planner plan in the General channel.

  12. When working in Planner, allow another window option so you can converse and see planner at the same time

    We use planner for deployment of projects. Tasks are listed. Only problem is if you are in planner and then want to send a message in conversations tab, you literally have to exit planner, go to your conversations tab and then go back to planner. There should be a way that you can keep planner up and converse at the same time. Give option for planner to be in another 'window'

    Currently, Planner Task statuses limited to "Not Started", "In Progress" or "Complete". Would be useful to have a "Canceled" option as well. Deleting removes the Task altogether, which does not show the task existed and was canceled. Other Statuses, such as "On Hold" might also be useful so as to record a task still needs to be completed but with an indefinite due date.

  15. copy a planner & printing it

    Hi, my name is Monica, I work at Ltapparel/ we have a 3 season calendar spring/fall and school. I would like to know how can I copy a planner that I set up for Spring 2020 onto Fall 2020 and School 2020? All task/events are the same - the only changes would be the start and end dates, there are over 100 lines & I would appreciate having a copy function rather then retyping it all again twice. I've attach a screenshot of how my planner looks - which by the way I would also like to know how to…

  16. Users outside Team to View and Add Planner Tasks

    On the tech community I have seen requests from admins for users outside of a Team to View and Add Planner Tasks to a Planner inside of that Team as opposed to setting up a new team for users. This would be great functionality for team leaders, managers, and where several departments work together but don't need access to each others content.

  17. Convert URL to clickable link in tasks

    Same as in a conversation:
    Posting a URL should always convert it to a clickable link.

  18. /Tasks to see your direct reports list of tasks including open tasks from Planner.

    As a manager, I want to be able to select an employee and see tasks assigned to them, including open tasks. This is also important to an employee that is assigning tasks to others to be able to investigate their statuses.

  19. Transfer task between planner

    In some project I use different planner for channels so that each channel uses its own workflow.

    At some point I need to move a task to another plan.
    It would be great to be able to do that

  20. Can MS Planner be used track project hours…

    So I’m a 365 user now, deep in Teams and have questions, one specifically in mind to ask.

    Can MS Planner be used track project hours. I’m looking for a way to get information on assigned + completed tasks to help me compare a projects estimated cost against actual time spent.
